Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator: 93 Points
A flicker of savory leads off, giving the raspberry, red currant and cherry compote flavors lift and direction. Ends with a bramble hint as the fruit plays out nicely. Shows range, with freshness taking the lead and some depth in reserve. Drink now through 2030. 3,029 cases made. — JM


Wine Enthusiast: 98 Points
This stellar, powerhouse wine is perfumed in aromas of pencil, leather and sage that season a core of mineral and crushed rock. The fruit is equally savory in currant and plum, with a dusting of dark chocolate. Enjoy now–2029. - VIRGINIE BOONE


Jeb Dunnuck: 92--95 Points
(92-95 points) Moving to the barrel samples, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, elegant wine that lacks the richness of the 2015 yet has perfumed notes of red and black currants, spring flowers, and spice. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot that was harvested early in September, it’s going to need short-term cellaring.


Antonio Galloni: 93 Points
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Fresh, perfumed and silky, the 2016 captures all of the most elegant qualities of the year. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint, rose petal and spice notes are laced throughout in this subtle, gracious Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are simply in the right place. It is so great to see Larkmead's entry-level Cabernet capture all the potential it showed as a young barrel sample. -- Antonio Galloni


James Suckling: 94 Points
Dense and fruity with lovely, layered tannins and lots of blueberries, blackberries and hints of dried flowers. Full body, dusty, gritty tannins and a flavorful finish. Chewy, yet will come around with two or three years of bottle age. Drink after 2022.
